Trooper Clayton J. Gocha
A 48-year-old Yakima Washington State Trooper has died from what doctors assume is complications from pneumonia.
"It was a tremendous loss for all of us and to have it come in such a sudden way has been very difficult for everybody to process," said Lieutenant Tom Foster with the Washington State Patrol.
WSP is mourning the sudden loss of Yakima trooper Clayton J. Gocha. Known to friends as CJ, the husband and father checked into the hospital Sunday after running a fever. By early Monday morning, he had died.
"It was a total shock to all of us," said Lt. Foster.
